Child Porn Suspect Arrested


Full story and MySpace profile:

Following a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Elko sheriff’s deputies on Monday arrested a Spring Creek man they say was in possession of roughly 2,000 photos depicting child pornography.

Anthony Thompson, 18, was taken into custody without incident. Police also collected a voluminous collection of child porn, his computer’s hard drive and other items.

Police allege Thompson posted images of nude children, many of them engaged in sexual activity.

According to Undersheriff Rocky Gonzalez, between 750 and 1,000 of the photos depict boys between the ages of 10 and 15 “in compromising positions.”

Gonzalez said Thompson was cooperative, and reportedly admitted possessing the images. He is suspected of posting some of the images on the Internet, including the popular social network site MySpace.
